Acquire Box Game


“Acquire is a box game that is easy to learn and can be played in about an hour by four players.  I bought a dozen games and break the class up into teams and link the game to cases on rivalry, competition, and acquisitions.  It does a great job of putting students in the position to see how serendipity and strategy interact, and how your wins are a function of others’ actions, intentions and hubris.  The first site below actually has a couple of free and simple DOS versions of the game that students can use for practice and familiarization.” Click Here to Access
